I thought that was a drug safe to take every night??? I'm a little confused about why there would be and issue is there a dosage issue? Or are you getting weaned off?
I'm not a doctor but in the field and know lots of medications... I need a little more info. But, you can always call your pharmacy or the pharmaceutical company to get answers as well...
HOPE ALL IS WELL! TAKE CARE!
Hi, this is a medication that can be used daily on a long term basis. It won't work as well if taken ad lib. I've been taking it for 4 or 5 years now. It was first prescribed to help the pain and insomnia i experienced due to a back injury. I now continue to take it to help with sleep. It is a very 'safe' medication to be used for sleep, compared to a lot of others.
I use it for sleep, but on an every day basis. Works well. I'm not sure how it would work taking it here and there. It took me awhile to adjust to the sleepiness. Also works somewhat as a pain reliever, especially for bladder pain. And my mother called it her "Happy Pill". It worked great as an antidepressant for her. Regards - EJ23
